Olivia Noh helps adult violin players overcome challenges and develop confidence in their musical abilities so they can live a musically empowered, artistically enriched life and connect with others through music. 

As a dedicated musician and educator, her journey in music began with a remarkable debut as a competition winner at Seoul National University of Education during her childhood. Since then, her musical journey has been characterized by excellence and a relentless pursuit of artistic growth for herself and for others.

Olivia’s passion for music education led her to work with students of all ages. Her teaching journey and experience was featured in Strings magazine here. 

 

After successfully teaching privately for over a decade, she recognized the unique challenges faced by adult learners and took her dedication to teaching a step further and created an innovative online coaching program. 

Through this program, Olivia guides adult players to learn effectively, overcome performance challenges, and develop confidence in their musical abilities so they can reach their musical goals and unlock their true potential.

As a performer, Olivia has appeared in renowned concert halls such as Carnegie Hall in New York, Symphony Hall in Boston, and the Bushnell Center for the Arts in Hartford and has graced the stage with numerous orchestras, including the Eastern Connecticut Symphony, Hartford Independent Chamber Orchestra, and New Britain Symphony.

Olivia's educational achievements reflect her commitment to excellence in music. She earned her Bachelor of Music degree from Boston University, where she honed her skills under the guidance of exceptional mentors and pursued further studies at The University of Hartford Hartt School, where she earned her Master of Music degree and Graduate Performance Diploma. 

During her time at The Hartt School, Olivia had the privilege of receiving long-term training from esteemed educators such as Teri Einfeldt, Chair of the Suzuki Department, and Christie Felsing, Director of Teaching and Learning, both at The Hartt School Community Division. Her principal teachers Katie Lansdale, Bayla Keyes, and Marylou Speaker Churchill, played pivotal roles in shaping her musical abilities and artistic vision. 

Throughout her musical journey, Olivia has sought opportunities to expand her horizons and learn from distinguished musicians. She studied chamber music with Emlyn Ngai, the members of Lion's Gate Trio, Muir Quartet, and Triple Helix Piano Trio, enriching her understanding of collaborative music-making. Noh has also had the privilege of participating in master classes with renowned artists such as Vadim Gluzman, Juilliard Quartet, Renée Jolles, and Benjamin Zander, further fueling her artistic growth.
